Spatial Virtual Polarization Filter Design for Radar Sensor
As interferences are introduced from main-lobe direction which results in tar-get signal are masked by interference, traditional adaptive beam-forming can not suppress main-lobe interferences effectively. Polarization filtering is a main method to suppress the interference in radar and other sensor systems. Based on the spatial polarization characteristic (SPC) of antenna, a spatial virtual polarization filter (SVPF) is proposed by constructing polarization decomposition and polarization estimation of the received signal. A generalized construction method of SVPF is provided, the performance of the SVPF is given, and simulation results of the interference suppressing are illustrated. It is indicated that the proposed filter is a valid filtering technique for interference canceling. SVPF made single polarized radar own polarization information processing ability which improved radar working performance.
